Contents Introduction. -- Two challenges for nonviolent action. -- China revolutionizes digital autocracy. -- Russia wages information warfare. -- Recommendations for policymakers and activists.
Summary Nonviolent action campaigns are one of the most common ways citizens seek to peacefully change nonresponsive political systems. Yet recently developed and emergent technologies are transforming the nature of interactions between activists and authoritarian governments. This report examines the increasingly sophisticated set of tools--such as facial recognition and surveillance of social media platforms--authoritarian regimes are using to stifle nonviolent movements, and provides recommendations for how policymakers and activists can develop creative strategies for overcoming digital authoritarianism.
